Really for the most part life has been pretty great to me in the last year or so. While there are always ups and downs in life I feel like I am on the right path. I am still with the most wonderful man I could of ever dreamed of, we celebrated our year anniversary in July. We are both on a weight loss journey together now and I feel that we are both going to make it. We are engaged to be married next September so I am very excited, and we decided to change our lifestyles so that when we are ready to have kids we can be good role models for them.

Well I haven't been back for a while...and there is a reason for that. Life has really been happening lately....this time they are good things. :D My sister and sister-in-law are both pregnant with baby girls...both due within days of each other. My sister and her boyfriend just bought a new that is really exciting too. :D Recently I got the first boyfriend that I've had since 2006. I am so excited! He is so sweet, I have never meet anyone who treats me like he does. I also have never met someone who seems so head over heels for me. He doesn't care where we are he just wants to be with me...he even told me so. My feelings for him are becoming extremely strong...very quickly. I hope that this lasts....but you know they say that you will know when you've found the one...I really think it's him. On the health end of things...I am doing much better. I haven't weighed myself in over a month so I have no idea if I have lost any weight. I did however get diagnosed with low thyroid (FINALLY) and have been taking the pills for a few weeks now. They really seem to help me a lot. I am feeling more energetic and alive...although my new relationship has caused me to lose interest in a lot of things that I once enjoyed...including eating. I think that he is helping me become a real adult...I don't want to even really play my facebook games anymore. I don't see that as being a bad thing though....I am 25 almost 26 and I really want to get serious about my life. Now that I have someone who loves me for who I am...I really need to work on my health to make sure that I stay around for him...I don't want to hurt him. Anyway...things are going great and as soon as we get settled in to the new house completely then I will start weighing myself again. emoticon

Well I was diagnosed about a year ago with Insulin Resistance and pre-diabetes. I didn't do what I was supposed to do to keep it from becoming Diabetes. I haven't been to the doctor yet to get "officially" diagnosed however my fasting blood sugar of 140 this morning pretty much tells me that I am there. I have to get on this....everything I do seems to work but I have a problem sticking with it. Now I work overnight too and I am always sooooooo hungry! I am going to buy some Chia seeds and see if maybe they will help me with my appetite. I did however exercise this weekend...I got Dance Dance Revolution for the ps2 and played with it for about 15 minutes....which totally wiped me out. I am going to use it multiple times a week to help me get moving. It's a hard game for me and it's kinda hard on my ankles but it is a lot of fun. Unlike most exercise I noticed that I kinda didn't wanna stop...the only reason that I did was because my back was starting to hurt and I didn't wanna overdo it the first time. This weekend after I get paid I am going to the store and buying items low in sugar and carbs to help me lose weight and get rid of the diabetes. I know that if I don't do this that I will die before I really get a chance to live. I just wish I hadn't let it get this bad.

So I read on a message board that calling exercise "play" is a key to actually wanting to do it. I have been listening to the Gabriel Method CD every night for a week and I think it is really changing my views on exercise as well as food.... I dont have a desire to drink soda anymore at all!!! I actually feel bummed out if I am somewhere and I don't have water with me. So I took my fitness hula hoop out of the closet on saturday. I worked on it and worked on it and couldn't keep it up for more than a couple seconds....seems like I don't have the motion right. Well I got so obsessed with figuring out how to do it that before I knew it I had been exercising for an hour! I was so tired afterwards but it was a LOT of fun. The next night my nephew came outside with me and I ran around with him and did the hula hoop again for about 30 mins. I am really excited about what life has in store for me...seems the stars are aligning..I have a wedding to go to at the end of April and I think I actually have a date to take with me. YAY! emoticon emoticon

So my main struggle has always been the emotional/mental side of weight loss. I was searching the other night for something that would help me get there mentally and I think I've found it. The Gabriel Method not only helps you deal with your "mental obesity" as he calls it but he also really advocates raw foods which is something that I have been trying to incorporate. I tried some of the visualization techniques last night and let me tell you...I woke up feeling great...feeling free. I'll keep you all up to date with my progress. emoticon emoticon

    You are right to be excited about finding The Gabriel
Method. When I first heard Jon tell his story two years
ago. I knew it was the key I had been missing. When I
started following his suggestions, is when the weight
began to literally start to melt. I am now in
maintenance and I still follow his guidelines.

Jon is a loving caring person who really understands
both the struggle that so many attempts for weight loss
entail and the biochemistry to help our bodies want to
be thin. He, also, better than anyone knows that so
often we hold on to weight for emotional reasons.
Our bodies want us to be safe. When we hold
unconscious beliefs that extra fat will keep us safe,
there is little we can do to change.

Stay with this program. Be patient. It does work but it
takes longer to see the results. Make the commitment
and you will see emoticon results
